Cabrini Ministries – Swaziland

Over $2000 was raised, from Katie’s efforts! The proceeds from this evening went to support children through Cabrini Ministries Swaziland. Their holistic model includes food and shelter, as well as psychosocial services, education sponsorship, and collaboration with and support for children’s remaining family members. Swaziland has the highest rate of HIV/AIDS in the world at almost 30% of the population. Current statistics estimtate that over 60,000 children have been orphaned in Swaziland (a country of 1 million) as a result of HIV/AIDS.
